Like many of you, I'd like more folks to sign up for my forums and become contributors. A good number of users find my site through Google and ultimately land within a thread. I've got a welcome message notification setup, with links to login. However, I feel as if we could be doing more to convert these folks to members. I'm looking at stock vB installs and they've got that persistent login form on every page. Any thoughts on how we can do something similar and increase conversion of guests to members?
